Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop ?

Wireless Connectivity lost

\015 I have had my router for over a year and all of a sudden lost the connection (maybe due to crazy storms in the area). When\015\012you click on the wireless connection icon, it would not connect despite having a strong signal. I tried to reset the router and may have made things worst -- my PC has a USB connection and I cannot get an IP address for the router because it is not connected to the PC.My current connection is as follows: Netgear WGR614 router is connected to the modem (via an ethernet cable) and the PC is connected to the modem (via a USB cable).\015\012Please tell me how to reconnect the router....\015

Greetings Roxie
\015\012Are you using XP or Vista?
\015\012
\015\012The default ip address for a Netgear 192.168.0.1 - the default user is 'admin' and the default password is 'password'. Is it possible for you to run an ethernet cable from your PC to the router or from your laptop to the router so we can address its configuration?
\015\012
\015\012Once you have connected the cable, wait about 30 seconds and then open Internet Explorer. In the address bar type 192.168.0.1
\015\012
\015\012At this point the login to the router should come up. If it doesn't report back and let me know. If it does - log in using the default info I listed above. Verify that your connection type is DHCP. From there go to the wireless settings page. Make sure that wireless is enabled and make note of the name (SSID) of your network. Also take note of what channel you are broadcasting on. By default it is probably 6 but you should probably change it to 11. You can also enable or disable the security encryption from this page but lets disable encryption if it is not already disabled.
\015\012
\015\012Once you have verified these items are present and enabled, save the routers configuration. Disconnect your laptop from the router. Unplug the power to the router. Unplug the power to the modem. Make sure all of the lights on the modem go out. Stand tall and sing our national anthem (wait about a minute) and then plug the modem back in. Once the online light has gone solid green plug the power back into the router.
\015\012
\015\012Now go to your laptop and observe the little computer icon in the lower right by the clock. Does it indicate that there are networks available? If so - double click on it to see the available networks. Make sure you are connecting to YOUR network (the SSID we took note of earlier). If it says connected - you should be OK. If it says anything else let me know what it is. Good luck!
